You Who Hear in these Scattered Rhymes

March 2, 2013 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Musicians in Ordinary present:

“You Who Hear in these Scattered Rhymes”

Baroque settings of the great Italian poets: Petrarch, Tasso, Marino, Guarnieri

Vincenzo Galilei was as clever with music as his son turned out to be with a telescope. He said, “the most important and principal part of music is the imitation of the concepts of the words” and that the best musicians would observe “the man infuriated or excited, the married woman, the clever harlot, the lover speaking to his mistress as he seeks to persuade her to grant his wishes, the man who laments…” Given words by the greatest poets of all ages and voice by India, Monteverdi, Caccini and others, these characters and many more put in an appearance at this concert. Hallie Fishel sings and John Edwards plays theorbo.
